Hard top insulation

Quick question. If I was to spray undercoating on the inside of my hard top do you think that would help keep a lil bit of the heat in during the winter. Not worried about sound because i like hearing the tires. Or is there already something out there to use.

The something out there is to upgrade the heater, then you won't have to worry about insulating the top. Put in a new heater core and do the Chevy Blazer heater motor upgrade.

I put in a headliner to help with that problem. I just picked up a piece from a local auto upholstery shop, flipped the hardtop upside down, cut the liner to fit, and glued it in with contact cement. Looks good and I like to pretend that it helps keep me warm . Also, the other guy is right, I did the blazer motor upgrade a long time ago and it was a huge improvement over the stock heater.

Here's what I plan to put in mine.

Put it in, then a liner in to cover it! I have a friend that used it in his 37 Chevy. You wouldn't believe the difference it made.
